Emory staff photographer and documentarian Bryan Meltz isn't one to turn away from life at its hardest. So after an Emory assignment took her to Haiti following the devastating January 2010 earthquake, she decided one trip wasn't enough. Now, "AFTER: Images from Haiti" brings vibrant images from the country as life continued in the year after the earthquake.
This Labor Day weekend, Meltz's book will be featured at the AJC Decatur Book Festival, where she will be signing books in the Emory tent on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 1:30 p.m. All proceeds from sale of the book are going to the Tucker, Ga.-based nonprofit GIANT Global, which works on issues of nutrition and health around the world (including Haiti).
Meanwhile, a rotating exhibit of Meltz's photography included in the book is on display at Emory's Woodruff Library until early September. It will then be featured in the Rollins School of Public Health.
